Spring 2020 registration now open!

For registration information based on student type, please choose from the two options listed below:

"I am already a student at HCC"

If you are already a student at HCC, you will first consult with your faculty advisor or success coach in order to plan your semester.

Not sure if you are currently being advised by a faculty advisor or success coach? Contact Student Services for further assistance – 828.627.4500.

Please note, all students with a start term of fall 2019 and forward are assigned to a success coach for advising purposes.


  1. Call or email your advisor during the open registration period.

    Your advisor will help you plan the courses you should take and unlock online registration. If you do not know how to reach your advisor, you may call Student Services at 828.627.4500. ​Once registered, you may then pay for courses online using WebAdvisor, which can be accessed through the Network Access Portal. Students may also visit the HCC Cashiers Office to make payments in person.  
  2. Log in to WebAdvisor.

    Select "Students." If you are ready to register, proceed to next step (item #3).
    If you are just planning and want to search for available sections, please see the following link – View class schedules (use the dropdown menu to filter by class type or click on the term title to see all courses). From there, you may choose a Term and a Subject. The "Enrolled/Capacity" column will tell you how many seats are still available and how many total students can be registered.
  3. When ready to register, under "Registration," select "Register for Sections."

    From there, select "Search and Register for Sections" and proceed to choose a Term and a Subject. The "Available/Capacity/Waitlist" column will tell you how many seats are still available, how many total students can be admitted, and how many students are on the wait list if the course is full. Put a check in the box to "Select" the class and Submit.
  4. Return to the "Students Menu" and select "Make a Payment" to pay for your courses.

    If you see "Error: You do not have any financial activity to display," this means your account has not yet been billed. Please check back later.
  5. Make sure to pay attention to the start date of  your classes.

    Some short semester courses begin later in the semester. Start and end dates for every course are available on our Class Schedules page.
  6. Make plans to purchase your textbooks.

    Textbooks may be purchased through the HCC bookstore online. Go to the Bookstore and click on "Shop," “Textbooks,” “Find Your Textbooks” link to determine what books you need for a course and to purchase them online if you wish to do so. You will have to view and agree to the Returns Policy before using this service.
  7. On the first day of instruction after 8AM, log in to your online course.

    Login instructions are on the Moodle homepage. It is important to begin your classes on time. Be sure you have the required materials/hardware/software and be sure to complete the mandatory attendance assignment (called the "HOP Attendance Requirement") in each of your online and hybrid courses. Students who do not complete the HOP Attendance Requirement during the first 10% of the course will be dropped from that course without refund.
